Plugged in M.2 Nvme SSD but it's not showing up in system information, device management?

With my Laptop being a few years old, I wanted to upgrade my Operating system from my 2tb 5400rpm HDD to a faster M.2 Nvme ssd.


I done some research on my model of gaming notebook and inspected the motherboard and noticed it's compatible with a Pcie Nvme ssd. I've purchased one and have installed it correctly into the board. 

Once the laptop has loaded, I can't find the SSD anywhere. I've tried Device Management, System information (and it doesn't appear next to my C: drive)


I'm fairly new to upgrading computers so any help would be amazing.

The Crucial memory report and the service manual for your notebook both indicate that only SATA M.2 SSD's are supported.


See chapter 1 of the service manual.
